|Interesting that Channel 7 news in South Florida aired a news broadcast about "skipping shots." Visit www.wsvn.com and scroll down on the front page to "Medical Reports: Skipping Shots" for the video.
So what should a parent do? Many say they're just too scared because
of stories like these, and other reports of a suspected link to
autism. That's why so many are skipping the shots all together and as
Seven's Lynn Martinez tells us that has doctors very worried.
WSVN -- April Renee: "She was born June 3rd, 1995 perfect 8 pounds 9
April Renee called her daughter Casi her angel.
April Renee: "I walked into her room every morning singing you are my
sunshine my only sunshine, she was my life."
Casi was developing normally saying, mama and dada, but then her mom
noticed something wasn't right. She says the change happened right
after her second round of vaccinations.
April Renee: "At 15-months she wasn't going from a lying to a sitting
position, we knew something was wrong with her."
Casi never spoke again, she was labeled autistic. At the age of four,
she developed bacterial meningitis, which eventually led to her
death. Her mother blames the vaccines for poisoning her system.
April Renee: "We all have the right to know what we're injecting into
our newborn babies."
Lynn Martinez: "Vaccines have been at the center of controversy for
years. Many parents believe that a mercury-based preservative called
thermerisol now banned from the market caused neurological problems
in children. But a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control
found no link between vaccines and autism."
Dr. Anne Schuchat: "We don't know all that we want to know about the
safety of vaccines. However, the issue of autism has really been
looked at extensively and there's no association between vaccines
we're giving out and autism."
Yet, some parents are not convinced. Craig Kaler decided not to
vaccinate his 11-month old daughter Chloe.
Craig Kaler: "We've actually weighed the benefit versus risk and the
potential side effects from the vaccines could damage her for life."
And he's not alone, there's a growing trend nationwide among parents
not to vaccinate. In Florida, you can file a religious or medical
exemption and your children will still be allowed in schools even
though they're not vaccinated.
According to Miami-Dade County Public School records, nearly 3,000
students were granted exemptions for the 2007 school year. That
number has nearly doubled since the year 2000.
In Broward County, the number of students granted exemptions this
year 16-hundred and 86. Pediatrician Linda Colon-Adames says that's a
sign more parents are speaking up and questioning the mandatory
vaccines. She says, some parents ask her to space out the shots
instead of giving them all at once fearing it may be too much on such
a fragile new system.
Dr. Linda Colon-Adames: "You're talking about seven vaccines on a
brand new immune system, brand new neurological system, brand new
baby and maybe we need to reconsider how we're doing things."
But pediatrician Manuel Pedroso says, he advises his patients to
follow the vaccination guidelines.
Dr. Manuel Pedroso: "We need to balance the minor side effects you
can get from vaccines in comparison with the effects of having the
illness which can be life long."
But for April, there are still too many questions. That's why she
started an organization called Educate Before You Vaccinate. She says
she wants to help parents make informed decisions about vaccinations.
April Renee: "For everyone to learn from my mistakes and educate
before they vaccinate."
Lynn Martinez: "Doctors are concerned about potential outbreaks if
more children are attending school without their vaccinations. Even
children who received their shots could be at risk because no vaccine
prevents disease 100 percent.

|speaking of scary things about vaccines, take a look at this video:
This segment of In Lies We Trust: The CIA, Hollywood & Bioterrorism, produced and freely contributed by consumer protector and public health expert, Dr. Leonard Horowitz, features the world's leading vaccine expert, Dr. Maurice Hilleman, who explains why Merck's vaccines have spread AIDS, leukemia, and other horrific plagues worldwide.
